DataWords: Getting Contrarian with Text, Structured Data and Explanations

by   Stephen I. Gallant, et al.

Our goal is to build classification models using a combination of free-text and structured data. To do this, we represent structured data by text sentences, DataWords, so that similar data items are mapped into the same sentence. This permits modeling a mixture of text and structured data by using only text-modeling algorithms. Several examples illustrate that it is possible to improve text classification performance by first running extraction tools (named entity recognition), then converting the output to DataWords, and adding the DataWords to the original text – before model building and classification. This approach also allows us to produce explanations for inferences in terms of both free text and structured data.
